NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in ‘Smokey Look’

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss is a product that is highly rated and raved about across the blogosphere. The wide color variety and top notch quality for an unbelievable price makes it one of the best sellers. Smokey Look is what I got for myself.

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss
Kiss me quick! Our signature Mega Shine Lip Gloss delivers shine, moisture and softness and envelops lips with glistening color. The finish is both creamy and steamy and ensures knockout glamour. A blend of mineral and lanolin oils helps protect the pout. Available in 64 almost sinful lip gloss shades.

My thoughts
Hands down, it’s the best lip gloss in my stash right now. I am not a lip gloss person but this product converted me. I used to love lip glosses back in my teens but eventually switched to lipsticks. The reason being that most lip glosses I used would lose their effect after a short time. NYX Mega Shine comparatively lasts longer.

I got my self Smokey Look last year. It’s a gorgeous peachy shade (but appears nude on me since I have pigmented lips). I don’t really wear it alone; I usually top it on a nude or pink lipstick or a dark shade to tone down the color. It is AHmazinG! I won’t say it lasts all day - it needs to be reapplied after an hour or two - BUT on me it lasts quite well compared to other glosses that I own and I am glad it comes with a doe-foot applicator.

In my opinion, the best thing about this gloss would be its creamy texture. It’s quite moisturizing, glides like butter on my lips without feeling heavy or sticky. The pigmentation in the swatch speaks for itself. You don’t find many glosses with such a great pigmentation – gets opaque on one coat. If you’re someone with pigmented lips, I say try Mega Shine – you can’t go wrong!

Smokey Look has got tiny shimmer in it that doesn’t show up on application (no crazy sparkle) so I can wear it the day time too. I LOVE how it gives my lips somewhat a fuller and plumper effect instantly! NYX Smokey Look and Revlon Crème Gloss are the only two glosses that have impressed me in the longevity department. I would give Smokey Look an extra point only because it doesn’t feel sticky. Otherwise, they both are pretty much comparable.

The only thing that can put you off is the scent. Some say it smells like candies while some think it smells like cough syrup. So that totally depends on your perception. It remains detectable for some time. To me, it doesn’t bother as long as I don’t taste it.

Overall, NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Smokey Look makes it to the top of my favorite lip gloss list and I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

You might like it if...
  • You're looking for a shiny peachy lip gloss.
  • You expect it to be non-sticky.
  • You're looking for a lip gloss that lasts longer (for up to an hour or two).
  • You expect good pigmentation.
You might not like it if...
  • It settles into your lip lines and it bothers you.
  • You don't dig the scent.

I got my Mega Shine lip gloss from PorkDaisy last year but it's also available at BeautyJoint. They both ship worldwide (to Pakistan too). NYX can also be found on International Makeup, Beauty Unleashed and Dhanak. It costs around $5 or PKR 700 - 800.

What do you think about NYX Megashine lip glosses? Tried any?
